The Dionne Stamp of Approval
Couldn’t have said it better ourselves:
I mourn the decline of the moderate and liberal Republicans. Though not always coherent, progressive Republicanism did try to balance things out, to be socially generous, fiscally prudent and responsibly internationalist. But if conservatives keep trying to drive the moderates and liberals out of the party, the handful of survivors may decide to pack up and leave on their own, as Vermont’s Sen. Jim Jeffords did. That’s what the Club for Growth wants. Despite Specter’s victory, it is slowly but inexorably getting its wish.
